Default Balancing act

Most tires premounted or not are way and in some instances way way way way out of balance. Pick your car up and hit the throttle. If you feel any imbalance at all take the time to balance all four tires. Then try it again. You'll never run an unbalanced tire again. I know it takes time and is about as much fun as hemorhoids but it's worth it in the end. After a while you'll get the feel of how much weight to put on by just how much the tire/wheel centers itself on the balancer.

After all these are mostly all electric cars and at least balancing tires is not any more boring than watching batteries charge.
